Correspondence typefaces help establish an identity from the inside out. Unlike pro fonts that are made for designers and press operators, correspondence fonts require no design background and work in harsher office environments.

Facit

Tim Ahrens for Just Another Foundry

Facit’s sturdy, linear forms and generous spacing make the face a pleasure to read and help it to stand up to office print environments. While basic word processors can’t handle its standard ligatures, the efficiently-drawn fi/fl combinations are designed to avoid collisions without attracting undue attention.

TheAntiqua

Luc(as) de Groot for LucasFonts

Though Luc(as) de Groot’s Thesis series has both sans, serif and in between covered, his approach for long texts was to create something with a more modulated contrast. The Antiqua is especially valuable in Pan-European markets, additionally offering Greek and Cyrillic support.

PMN Caecilia

Peter Matthias Noordzij for Linotype

One of the archetypes of the humanist slab category, the PMN Caecilia® typeface gives the text a sense of warmth and openness. Because of its low contrast and open counters, the face functions well at almost any size. Four weights, complete with sumptuous companion italic.

FF Meta Correspondence

Erik Spiekermann and Ole Schäfer for FontFont

This is Erik Spiekermann’s famous FF Meta® typeface, adjusted and retuned to everyday office use. In a select set containing just Regular and Bold with companion italics, its forms are simplified, strengthened, and generously spaced for maximum clarity on screen and off the copier.

Parisine Office

Jean François Porchez for Typofonderie

Similar to FF Meta Correspondence above, Parisine Office focuses on interoperability and functioning in a range of screen and transmission environments. The economical design builds on a grotesque model with subtle humanist details like gradual instrokes and upturned tails.
